    Well, my lil' peepers survived their first night. They are all on a sleep, peep, eat, sleep cycle, with a little stretch and bounce around time thrown in for good measure. Nights are in the low twenties, days in the thirties yet here in WI so I have their booder space set up in my house ( I read this is not recommended (possible salminila issues) but I only have a half dozen girls and am willing take the chance (no small children in the house, unless my grandson comes to visit). I am sure to wash thoroughly and clean their watering and food dishes seperately. They seem content with a heat reflector and a 75watt bulb. They have plenty of room to move away from the lamp's heat. They already come to the door when I open it to feed or water them, or just to get them used to me. I was so excited to pick them out, after spending allot of time researching them and reading all the stories, tips and hints on this wonderful website!
